The banhammer hadn’t hit yet, so I played the exact 75 I did in Bologna:
Main ==== 4 Arcbound Ravager 4 Master of Etherium 3 Memnite 4 Ornithopter 4 Signal Pest 1 Spellskite 4 Steel Overseer 4 Vault Skirge 1 Thoughtcast 1 Galvanic Blast 1 Ensoul Artifact 4 Cranial Plating 4 Mox Opal 4 Springleaf Drum 4 Darksteel Citadel 4 Blinkmoth Nexus 4 Glimmervoid 4 Inkmoth Nexus 1 Island Sideboard ======== 2 Thoughtseize 2 Ancient Grudge 2 Ghirapur AEther Grid 2 Etched Champion 1 Dismember 1 Grafdigger's Cage 1 Gut Shot 1 Stubborn Denial 1 Whipflare 1 Ensnaring Bridge 1 Spellskite
The FNM was very small, just 8 players. The LGS owner decided for 3 rounds + Top 4 to let people play a bit more.
Round 1 • Jund 2-0
I (slowly) beat him with a Vault Skirge and whatever was not immediately taken down by his removal spells. He went down to 2, then it became a race against [Kalitas](card:Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet]’s lifelink which was ended in my favor by a [Cranial Plating]. In Game 2 I gloriously countered a 4th turn Damnation with my single copy of Stubborn Denial and then won very quickly.
Round 2 • UB Processor Eldrazi 2-0
I mulliganed to 6, I remember having a slow but decent hand. My opponent apparently kept something like 6 lands because he played literally no threats, and my creatures in play were not impressed by his copies of [Thoughtseize](card:Thoughtseize] and Inquisition of Kozilek. Game 2 he found no answers to an early Master of Etherium, which he chump blocked until death.
Round 3 • ID 0-0
Intentional draw to get the best seed in top 4.
Semifinal • Infect 2-0
My opponent mulliganed aggressively to find a hand faster than mine, but was punished by that because he went down to 4 cards and lost. Game 2 was a race between his unblockable blue guy and my fliers, at some point he had a chance to win by topdecking another pump spell, it did not happen and was beaten down by several Ornithopters.
Final & GB Processor Eldrazi 2-0
In Game 1 my robot army was decimated by multiple Dismembers but my opponent was forced to pay life to cast them, putting him in a spot vulnerable to burst damage that I sneaked in with a Cranial Plating. In game 2 I had a slow starting 7, sent it back only to get 6 cards with no lands. Sent them back again to draw: Mox Opal, Memnite, Darksteel Citadel, Steel Overseer, Master of Etherium. I had two draws to find a land, I drew a Glimmervoid on the first turn and played all my stuff. On the second turn I activated the Overseer to put Master of Etherium out of Dismember range, which in a couple of turns won me the tournament.
I never went below 14 life in the whole tournament, which does not mean anything but still is a pretty cool stat.
